Coach: Neil Powell
Squad: An indication of just how strong the South African sevens are will be their recent record of finishing as either runner-up or champions in the series. They have emerged victorious twice in a row for the HSBC Rugby Sevens and are defending champions this year. Although they have exhibited being most formidable for the past few years, South Africa has been falling short this series, and now hovers some 30 points behind leaders USA. After taking the cup in Vancouver, fans are hoping to see the South Africa Sevens surge and take the lead back.
